in the hands of the green lobby. >> well, the u.n. has been very encouraging of the green lobby and the screen job issue is not an issue here in the united state. it is an issue also in europe being encouraged by the u.n., encouraged by the meeting over the summer. but europe is also finding green job aren't all they thought they would be. spain has stopped subsidies for solar power under that doesn't work in sunny spain it's not going to work anywhere. germany has also stopped at subsidies which is more understandable because there's a lot of clubs in germany, even though the economy isn't cloudy at all. the u.n. has had a strong influence on this. >> yes, sir. >> chuck bradford. you are probably not old enough to remember, the jimmy carter gave lots of money, billions of dollars to alternate energy projects. >> i do remember. >> too many of those plants still exist is the question? i don't think they lasted more than a couple years. secondly, are you familiar with another jimmy carter program, where he gave money to five different steel mills, for about engraft immediately on the fifth one p
this on "varney & company," we call it a renewed push for action due to climate change. now, the u.n. is joining in the dire warnings. coming up new at 10. find out exactly what the united nations plans to do about it. can anybody say carbon tax? yeah, you can. back to nicole, today, what have we got. best buy a loser? why? >> well, yesterday we talked about their numbers. they were a loser yesterday about their same-store sales for yet another quarter. nine of the last ten quarters have shown decline. today, well, let's see, one analyst downgraded best buy. how about deutche bank? yep, how about bernstein. >> yep, jeffers, you get the point. and while they're doing well with mobile phones, appliances, tablet computers and e-readers, no on notebooks, gaming products. they're missing the numbers, off to the ten year low. stuart: that's analysts when they turn against you, it can be grim, can't it? nicole, thank you. dead flat market, but the market has reached 12-8. we're up 13 points. time is money, 30 seconds, here is what else we have today. i'm a capitalist and i lovemaking money and i don't
a second term we might be able to get that done because we have a lot of long-term un unemployed. i hope some of the tax breaks, such as the breaks on social security payroll taxes can be continued onward from december. i think that's very important to keep money in the hands of the middle class and enabling their spending, and jobs. >> eliot: all the miles you're talking b all of which i'm fully in accord with all predicated with president obama to guide the path. i agree, if he gets the second term. one of the premise that i view and i think you view as one of the misguided policies of mitt romney if you lower the tax breaks you get an outbreak of investment. there was a survey that disputed that. they polled it under political pressure. what is your wisdom as someone who has studied this in great death, would this bring investment as mitt romney high hypothesizes. >> no, between cutting marginal tax rates on the top and creating more jobs or economic growth. clinton increased taxes and we had jobs than when bush cut taxes. yet average economic growth during the years was better than
an issue in the united states. it is an issue also in europe, being encouraged by the un and the meetings in rio over the summer but europe is also finding that green jobs are not all they thought they would be. spain just opted subsidies for solar power and if solar power doesn't work in sunny spain it won't work anywhere. germany has also stopped it subsidies for solar power which is more understandable because there are a lot of clouds in germany. even though the economy isn't cloudy at all. the un has had a strong influence on this. >> chuck bradford. you are cannot hold enough to remember but jimmy carter gave lots of money, billions of dollars to alternate energy projects. >> i do remember. i had to waiting gas lines in the 1970s. >> to any of those plants still exist? i don't think they lasted more than a couple years. secondly are you familiar with another jimmy carter program when he gave money to build five different steel mills four of which went bankrupt almost immediately and the fifth one put out of business the plant in kansas city they blame on things? >> jimmy carter's pr
will be coming and making a statement. i think is so important that the character of the un ambassador be clarified. it is our understanding from hearing two days of testimony that in fact what the un ambassador stated was the talking points that had been given approved declassified to the house intelligence committee. that is what i am told she restated. this member is absolutely convinced we are in it -- an accurate reflection of the intelligence community. that could be said at that time in a declassified manner. >> is the issue here that there were talking points that were classified -- >> there are many issues but i when the chairman and vice- chairman to speak as to the un ambassador. i will give a speech on the floor of the senate is still in session. >> we have gained important insights as to what has happened. i still believe there are questions that need to be answered. i think anybody with confusion in the basis of the two hearings, it is a premature conclusion. i am glad we have two morris sessions ahead of us. more people we need to talk to. it was helpful to have patraeus
that it's actually a state, and to justify more assistance, i think it will try and use u.n. channels more effectively to get money and may well join other u.n. specialized agencies now that the general assembly said it's the state. ab you know, israel and the state department have tried to play down yesterday's vote, but i'm afraid unlike a lot of u.n. votes which truly are completely meaningless, this one is going to have a real effect. >> ultimately i've got about 20 seconds left. are we going to be looking at billions of american taxpayer dollars going to palestine? >> under the obama administration, i think it's a real risk. i think they've been hostile to israel and this is one more step to make it easier for the obama people to do exactly that. >> okay. and ambassador john boulton, always a pleasure. >> thank you. stuart: coming up new at 10, the journal "science" comes out with a new study on climate change and could give even more ammunition for a global carbon tax. ammunition for new tax, that will be coming up for you at the top of this hour and as we always say, time is money a
. jon: several republican lawmakers are toning down their criticism of u.n. ambassador susan rice and her handling of the deadly attack on the consulate in libya. ambassador rice was under fire for appearances on the television immediately after the attack where she blamed it on the youtube video. many vocal critics, like senator john mccain are turning up the heat on president obama and the state department. >> the problem is the president of the united states in a debate with mitt romney said that he had said it was a terrorist attack. he hadn't. jon: chief intelligence correspondent catherine herridge is live in washington. she has more on all of this. so this shift in focus to the state department, what are we learning about that, catherine? report thank you, jon, and good morning. we may learn early as this week when secretary of state hillary clinton will testify on capitol hill about the warnings and intelligence leading up to the 9/11 attack on the consulate. on sunday talk shows leading republicans pointed to what they believe is the culpability of clinton's state departm
.m. eastern. a number of senators have been meeting with u.n. ambassador susan rice in the wake of her comments following the attack on the benghazi consulate. just wrapping up is a brief news conference and statement with senators. here is a look. >> i had a very candid ambassador rice embassador ric and the deputy director of the cia. [inaudible] she said if it was a spontaneous demonstration. it was not. there was telling evidence at that time. >> [inaudible] i am very disappointed in our intelligence community. i think they failed in many ways. i think it would be pretty clear that to explain this episode as related to a video that created a mob that turned into a riot was far-filled. at the end of the day, we are going to get to the bottom of this. we have to have a system that we trust. if you don't know what happened, just say you don't know what happened. you can say "i do not want to give that information." you can say the american people got bad information from president obama in the days after. the question is should they have been given the information at all? if you can d

. on libya, it was the whole leading from behind. he used the u.n., nato, much more of an internationalist, using the transatlantic institutions, networks that are in place to sort of bring europe back into the fold, firm up the alliance. let's remember romney did make his own campaign trip to europe. it will be remembered mostly by his gaffes in britain and poland, but it's telling that he chose britt tip and poland as places he visited. toes were two members of the bush era, both members who participated in the iraq war, full supporters of that war. is there was worry that the national would be pushed aside. particularly among foreign policy elites here in europe. >> peter, thanks for that. good to speak to you. >> we're also on central bank watch this week and the rba decided to hold off on further easing. this report comes from sydney. >> it was always going to be a call and it has surprised some in the market leaving rates unchanged. aussie dollar hitting session highs above 1.04 u.s. the banks did leave the door open for further stimulus highlighting the strength in the aussie dollar
cain and graham and others want to go after somebody, they should go after me. but for them to go after the u.n. ambassador, who had nothing to do with benghazi and was simply making a presentation based on intelligence she received and the besmirch her reputation, outrage out. >> mr. graham said, mr. president, don't think for one minute i don't hold you ultimately responsible for ben gazdy. i think you failed as the president before and after the attack. president obama responded to the petraeus scandal saying there's no evidence that national security was compromised. he stepped down after an affair with his bioography was exposed. he respects the fbi's protocol when it comes to disclosing information in ongoing investigations. broadwell's security clearance has been suspended. >>> is the middle east on the brink of war? israel launches one of its most ferocious attacks on gaza. israeli millty hit 20 targets today, one of them a pinpoint air strike that killed a hamas commander. israel says it's in response to the repeated rocket attacks by palestinian militants in gaza. hamas is already thr
, it just adds to these continuing layers of a narrative. if we are to expect that the u.n. ambassador, potentially the future secretary of state didn't have access and wasn't involved in discussions five days on from the attacks talking about the scenario of the terrorists the fact that there was no protest she talked about sunday morning show, then we have a serious problem. >> the picture in your head is she is handed a packet of paper. she reads it over, says thank you and goes and delivers it to the media. is that how it works? there is some sort of briefing, it's more than papers there is a discussion about what happened in which someone that is going to be the secretary of state should ask questions. correct? >> right. absolutely much the idea that somehow, you know, she slipped one page briefing memo with some talking points that by the way have been edited constantly apparently since the cia produced the basic intelligence, the raw intelligence from the field talking about what had been happening, it doesn't add up. and nothing happens in washington, you know, in a bubble. it'
, congressman devin nunes. good luck in averting what would be a tragedy for the country. up next, u.n. ambassador susan rice. she appears to be a very savvy investor. coming up tomorrow, joe trippi joins us. kris kobach on illegal immigration and fleet commander admiral james lyons. we are talking about benghazi. that is tomorrow. stay with us. the fiscal cliff, no game. the a-team tells us whether the president will listen or whether he will get ready to die lou: you can add environmentalists to the growing list of susan rice as potential nomination to the secretary of state. that is what she needed, little bit more opposition. she holds about a half million dollars in shares. the company seeking state department approval of a keystone xl pipeline. a third of her personal wealth coming out as high as 44 million is invested in canadian energy interests. she was born in canada and we don't know if there was a relationship. there is a reason critics report to the ex-im bank in the 2012 the school year, another 15 billion in taxpayer loan guarantees issued with the subsidized sales of a
their leader and needed help to do it and went to the u.n. to get that help. >> there were large numbers of iraqis that would have liked him overthrown -- >> there's a much more sectarian situation. >> sure it was. >> and libya was not a sectarian situation. so if you had a situation where you had support with the vast majority of the people, and you had u.n. backing so there was no way it could be tarred as a u.s.-alone, imperialistic attack to try to scoop up natural resources for yourself and cause blowback, then, yes -- >> i have seen this movie before, and hearing this talk about, oh, yeah, we're not going to bring in the exiles, and we're going to pick legitimate people in the country, and tom friedman backs it up. please. i saw it the first time. you guys were all in school the first time, but even there you probably got the idea that it didn't work out so hot. let's just let things happen the way they're going to -- let other people worry about their own countries. we have enough problems in this country. >> jim, did you have -- [applause] >> yeah. no, that's fairly similar to my
north korea it strikes me that kim jung un is allowing to some westernized foods and such in. do you foresee anything be an done about the boming and the supposed sunken ship? i don't see any sanctions from the administration on north korea. what specifically president obama dealing with this, i think there are things that should be done. i think he could possibly talk to him and maybe get back to the six party talks. i would like to know your views on that. thank you. guest: i think that's a good point. the new leader in north korea, kim jong un, is in power. but it is a famously closed society. there's certainly a fear of nuclear escalation and there have been shakeups within the north korean military. whether or not that's an internal power struggle, we do not know. one of the top generals was perhaps killed by mortar fire. perhaps that is something that obama will bring to the table on his trip to asia, but i think there is a consistent policy that we want to prevent nuclear escalation in the region and it is true for all sides. japan, south korea, china, and other areas. we just
right now some of the conventional wisdom says that u.s. ambassador to the u.n. susan rice even though she's embattled over her comments on benghazi, she may be the favorite for that role. so you've got some trial balloons floating around here. we know there are a couple deputies to the secretary of defense who are also being considered for the role. we'll have to wait and see exactly how it plays out. >> all right, brianna keilar, you have a full plate. >> yes. >> thank you very much. >> next hour we'll get reaction to general allen now being tangled in this scandal. nic paton walsh will join us with perspective there. >> and tom fuentes from the fbi will join us to talk about all this. >> then on "starting point," a man whose own sex scandal led to his down fall, former new jersey governor jim mcgreevey. jason chaffetz will way in and debbie wasserman shultz. >> man there is a lot going on today. you might not know this man. his software might be on your computer. john mcafee wanted for questioning now in a murder case. we'll have the details. >> another bizarre one. [ woman ] ring.
fearlessly stood up to the drug cartels found murdered. >>> and face-to-face behind closed doors today, u.n. ambassador susan rice takes on one of her sharpest critics, senator john mccain, over her actions after the benghazi attack. good morning and welcome to "early start," i'm deborah feyerick in for john berman. >> really nice to have you. >> i'm so glad to be here. >> i'm zoraida sambolin. it's 5:00 a.m. in the east. first, congress back to work, and back to bickering. in just under 35 days, america hits the fiscal cliff. that triggers severe spending cuts and tax hikes. several top republicans are now defying party politics and signaling a willingness to consider increasing tax revenues to get a budget deal done. but when the lame duck senate got back in session yesterday it sure sounded like the same old broken record. >> the senate has spoken. president obama has spoken. he's promising he will not sign any bill that mortgages our future to pay for handouts to the wealthiest 2% of americans. i only hope house republicans have been listening. >> we've been responsible, even as we've r

and started getting their houses and wrecking their homes and small businesses. un charles and sandra have talked about the american entrepreneurial spirit, the idea you are not victims but struggling in a common cause, small business here, trying to rebuild and feeling they're going to be sucker punched by at nor'easter that is bearing down. winds a picking up and temperature is dropping. as i enter this bill and not want to show you the water line. this is how high the water can and it ruined the businesses in the area where as joe's lobster house which has been around for four decades, he is rebuilding. you can see this business was gutted and you can see and hear in your the ceiling, it is intact. what you are going to see is hot water can and try to find joe bruce of who ran his business the better part of two decades. is he here? you can see here how deeply the business has been gutted. what concerns you about a nor'easter coming in? >> not much. everything already happened to us. this is a business. i am not worried too much about it. what happened happened already. we are fixing it
. when i look at what's going on this area, to u.n. security council is dysfunctional, not working, not capable of coming to a conclusion. the g20 has not fulfilled, at least not according to me, the expectations we had when this larger body was created. in other words, from a european point of view, you need to worry about the fact that europe will have obviously a smaller portion of the cake in the future. germany is going to a 1% of the worlds population. the e.u. altogether 5%, 40 or so. in other words, what probably needs minority protection. we have a ton about that much. that's a specific problem for europeans, not so much for americans. if that is correct analysis, did we need to worry about global governance. we are capable as long as we are in charge and as long as we still represent to some degree the majority and as long as are capable for helping to shape the international system. we are capable of shaping an international system, which will be sustained even when we are only a minority. in other words, we called the shot. can we reform the u.n., the g20 system and oth
there by u.n. secretary general for what will be a complex bit of diplomacy. the president's aide said mrs. clinton will not be going into gaza and not talking with hamas. >> can assure you she'll be meeting with the palestinian authority. the united states does not engage directly with hamas. hamas has not met the conditions we set. >> president obama voiced his support for israel's right to defend itself at a news conference on this trip. but in his private diplomacy, he has been urging israel to hold off sending troops into gaza and hopes the rocket attacks can be stopped without an escalation of the battle and the much greater casualties that would bring. this is the first international test of egypt's new muslim brotherhood government and while u.s. officials will not compare it with egypt's former president, hosni mubarak, they do say that they are encouraged by the consultation and cooperation they've had from egypt's new leadership. guys, back to you. >> steve: wendell goler in cambodia. >> brian: i don't know what time it is with laura ingraham. >> steve: she's in our time zone. >
a letter to barack obama on monday saying the u.n. ambassador susan rice miss led the nation about the attack on the united states consulate in libya. looking at one of last news item from politico, congressman alan west, if republican, has conceded florida's 18th district. this in a statement to politico -- the republican had been challenging the vote counting process and st. lucie county. we were watching to see how that was resolved. allen west conceding that race. thank you for all of your calls. on thursday morning, one of our first segment at 7:45 will be speaking to a professor at the university of maryland. there will give some insight into the current situation in the middle east. that is all for this segment. coming up next, we will look to the effort to rebuild and fix up the damage in the wake of hurricane sandy. the wall street journal's andrew grossman will join us for that. thomas ricks will be here to talk about that. we will be right back. ♪ >> , there are many people who might take issue with a grand setting the union during the civil war. did not lay gannett do
, when you have a position where you're ambassador to the u.n., you go well beyond unclassified talking points in your daily preparation and responsibilities for that job. that is troubling to me as well why she would not have as. i am the person that does not go anything about this. i will go on every show. it is not just the talking plans that were on classified but it was part of her responsibility as an ambassador to the u.n. and she reviewed much more than that. >> we need to do a lot more to e. we do not have the fbi interviews conducted -- conducted after the attacks. we do not have the basic information about what it is said the night of the attack that was shared with congress us of this date. i remember the john bolton episode well. our democratic friends felt he did not have the information needed to make informed decisions for john bolton to be an ambassador . the democrats would not consider the nomination until they got basic answers. all i can say is we are not close to getting the basic answer is. >> i have many more questions that can be answered. -- that cannot be answ
, pursued a counterproductive path at the un. i will have more to say about that tomorrow night at the forum here in washington, but for today let me offer this one thought for u.s. strategy in the region going forward -- we cannot view any of these challenges in a vacuum. they are all connected. our strategy needs to account for the intersections and relationships. for example, you cannot understand what happens in gaza without tracking the path of the rockets from iran. or how the upheaval in syria and the rise of the muslim brotherhood in egypt have affected hamas. how the treaty between egypt and israel remains the bedrock for peace in the region despite all the change going on around it. how israel's concerns over iran's nuclear program shape its overall security posture. then there are the economics of border crossings and fishing rights and concerns about smuggling and arms proliferation. the list goes on. the united states really does need to bring an unprecedented level of strategic sophistication to these -- rather than just going and chasing after the crisis of the moment. america
. >> no, he will not. meanwhile, martha, the u.n. ambassador, susan rice, caught up in all this. several republican senators said they would filibuster any attempt by the president to make her secretary of state. and yesterday, at his press conference, the president very forceful defending ambassador rice. take a look at this. >> she has done exemplary work. she has represented the united states in our interests in the united nations with skill and professionalism and toughness and grace. if senator mccain and senator graham and others want to go after somebody, they should go after me. >> reporter: a very strong defense. of course, it was the intelligence community that briefed susan rice before she went out on all the sunday shows saying this might have started because of protests, george. >> she was working off cia talking points. martha, thank you very much. >>> that question to president obama about ambassador rice came from jonathan karl, who joined in on the press conference. and joins us now with more. questions on all of the big issues. but much of the focus on that looming fisc
't the cia anticipate the attack or do more to stop it? so much republicans have been going after u.n. ambassador susan rise rise, she says intelligence pointed pointed ton taken just, not -- spontaneous, not a pre-planned attack. john mccain is calling her -- -- >> the reason i don't trust her is because i think through knew better, and if she didn't, she shouldn't be the voice of america. >> president obama is aggressively coming to rice's defense. >> if senator mccain and graham and others want to go after something, they should be after me. >> reporter: house and senate intelligence committees will be hearing the reports. >>> for a change, some good news about california's budget deficit. the nonpartisan legislate tier budget says california is now facing a $1.9 billion budget deficit in the coming year. that is well below the $13 billion deficit previously projected. the state could see even more surpluses afternoon that. the improving economy, budget cut-backs, and new tax revenues from the passage of prop 30 all credited for california's improving financial situation. >>> also,
of that. i think he will keep us out of war. he may utilize the u.n. differently. we are talking about iran, but we also have north korea, with nuclear issues there. that is equally as serious as iran. i think it will be a balancing act of trying to negotiate and do things through diplomacy rather than the military. that there's a lot of talk about citizens' rights. that would bring the u.n. perspective right into the body. >> that is what i was thinking, that senator kerrey would move over to that. >> i would agree with everything they said, but with an sterisk. i have no doubt the president would like to avoid conflict wherever possible, and in particular in the middle east. but history suggests what he would like to do -- woodrow wilson was reelected on a slogan that he kept us out of work, and several months later he was asked in congress for a declaration of war. >> johnson was elected on a platform of peace. >> the second quick question, fiscal cliff, do they call a deal together before march, the end of the year? it includes a tax deal? >> yes, before march. i am not sure before
this then acting to make things potentially even worse. >> let me turn it to jeffrey. >> we should ratify the un convention. there were 34 republican senators before the election who said they opposed it. i hope some of them have lost. [laughter] also, the political environment has changed in united states. perhaps there will be more of a disposition to do what the u.s. navy and joint chiefs of staff and every former secretary of state wants us to do and what the u.s. business community wants us to do that will give us moral standing in the south china sea. on cyber, can leverage fall has written a great monograph. -- a great monograph has been written. this will be a bigger issue that deserves more than 10 seconds. particularly the attacks on u.s. corporations, u.s. intellectual property is a core problem. it is an interesting subject. there is a lot that can be done, particularly in the investment area. in the ipr area, it can be done more successfully at the sub national level. governments in the united states, governments in china that want to attract investment, often more than their nation
risk picture came up very strong. we saw the u.n. security council meet last night. they didn't get a lot done. there's late reports egypt is closing borders to israel. that's not confirmed, but traders are talking about that. today, it seems even after a bullish weekly energy report, prices are going back down, especially here in the u.s.. those concerns about the fiscal cliff and weakening demand is really hurting prices right now. back to you. dennis: thunk phil flynn. cheryl: shoppers, mortgages are being sold in aisle 5. seriously. banks continue to make it tougher to refinance, and costco and wal-mart offer lopes and even business loans. professor at george mason, says the banks have nobody to blame but themselves. anthony, thank you for being here. consumer groups, advocate groups up in arms about this saying regulation needs to come down on retailers. that far into this now? >> well, the answer is this is a classic example of adam smith's invisible hand. we went through, put through the dodd-frank legislation, created a consumer protection bureau to tighten down on this stuf
'm happy to have that discussion with them. but for them to go after the u.n. ambassador who had nothing to do with benghazi, and was simply making a presentation based on intelligence that she had received, and besmirch her reputation is outrageous. and, you know, we are after an election now. i think it is important for us to find out exactly what happened in benghazi, and i'm happy to cooperate in any ways that congress wants. we have provided every bit of information that we have and we will continue to provide information, and we've got a full blown investigation. and all the information will be be scorched to congress. i don't think there's any debate in this country that when you're four americans killed, that's a problem. we've got to get to the bottom of it. there needs to be accountability. we've got to bring those who carried it out to justice. they won't be any debate from me on that. when they go after the u.n. ambassador, apparently because they think she is an easy target, then they've got a problem with me. and should i choose, if i think that she would be the best person
